That's what I plan on doing, throwin it away.
We have about 250 clients.
I don't mind creating the accounts in SAMBA and /etc/passwd, I just don't
want to re-configure all those client machines.
I heard of admins being able to use pwdump to make this happen smoother.
Then they just shutdown the WinNT PDC, Start SAMBA PDC and the users never
notice a thing. The alternative is to sit down on each PC, re-configure a
new domain and new settings.
Any help would be surely appreciated.
If someone can help me, I'll right a step by step doc on how to do the
migration for all to share.
